Starting with the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin in 2009, we have marked Darwin Day (February 12) each year with a celebration of science, holding a dinner and science talk on a Friday or Saturday night.

DARWIN DAY is an international celebration of science and humanity held around Charles Darwin’s February 12th birthday, celebrating the discoveries and life of the man, and expressing gratitude for the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity.

Features of the Darwin Day Dinner include a talk by a well-known scientist, a science quiz with fabulous prizes, and a chance to meet other science enthusiasts over dinner.
